9 doctors agree

In brief: Advil (ibuprofen)

Yes. If you have recently had glaucoma filtering surgery, you may wish to wait until your eye surgeon says it is ok to resume taking nsaids, of which Advil (ibuprofen) is a member.

The medicine in advil (ibuprofen) is not known to adversely affect glaucoma.
Advil (ibuprofen) has its own precautions to be aware of.
